“Film :: Theory” is a yearlong series of screenings, talks, and public discussions that aims to explore the relation between critical thought and the moving image. Instead of viewing philosophy as a way to explain cinema or film as a means to depict theory, we will explore how these mediums can work together, confront each other, or even begin to merge in the interest of larger intellectual and political projects. The series will include film adaptations of critical texts, video essays about the work of specific philosophers, and projects based on collaboration between theorists and experimental artists. Screenings will be accompanied by informal, speculative presentations by artists, scholars, and curators, and will be followed by collective discussion and light refreshments.

This one-day conference at New York University focuses on film costume and history.  A collaboration between two departments at NYU – the Cinema Studies program in Tisch School of the Arts and Costume Studies in NYU Steinhardt – Film Costume / Rendering Realities investigates film costume’s role in cinema’s multiple constructions of history and what impact those historical renditions have on culture.
